One case study
The challenge to create sustainable communities is identified as a core priority in ‘Securing The Future’, the UK government’s strategy for sustainable development. Tackling social exclusion and building neighbourhood engagement are seen as principal elements of that objective, and there is an urgent need for tools and initiatives to achieve these aims. Community currencies are a grassroots innovation which claim to meet those goals. They are initiatives which develop and utilise an alternative medium of exchange, to enable people to trade goods and services without using cash.

Efforts to mitigate climate change through managing carbon emissions are prompting new and imaginative policy proposals. One untested proposal to issue tradable carbon emission allowances (carbon currency) to all UK citizens, with the aim of limiting and reducing carbon emissions, is known as Personal Carbon Trading (PCT). The lack of empirical experience with PCT hinders its development, and so this paper makes a conceptual link with the field of complementary currencies (CCs) to explore similarities and derive lessons for success to aid the development and implementation of PCT.
